    Quick Start Tutorial – How to use the Photoshop splatter brushes


    To get the most out of these brushes you will want to use them with a graphics tablet (though they do work without one!)

    The brushes are Tool Presets (TPL files) and require Photoshop CS 5 or higher to work.

    The 7 Mixer brushes may not work with anything less than Photoshop CC (though I am not sure about this)

    If you want to use them with the GrutBrushes Plugin you will need Photoshop CC 2014 or 2015


    Q: How many brushes are there?
    A: 100! (93 Paint brushes and 7 mixer brushes)

    Q: I pre-ordered these, where do I download them?
    A: You will find the download link on your account page. It looks something like this:
